Lois Lane and Tom Lambert, representing The City Law School, have won the 2020-2021 Kingsland Cup and Prize Moot.
Lane, a Bar Vocational Studies (BVS) student and Lambert a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) alumnus, were victorious during the competition’s Grand Final on 30th September 2021, held at the Old Court Room, Lincoln's Inn.
The prestigious annual competition covers public, environmental and European law topics, drawn from Francis Taylor Building’s practice, and is named in honour of Christopher Lord Kingsland QC.
The competition takes place over three rounds: the first round sees entrants judged on the quality of their skeleton arguments; the semi-finals are oral moots held before distinguished puisne and Court of Appeal judges; and the final of the competition is frequently heard before a current or retired Supreme Court judge.
This year’s Grand Final was judged by Sir Keith Lindblom, Senior President of Tribunals, and Professor Alison Young, Sir David Williams Professor of Public Law at the University of Cambridge.
The final was sponsored by Bloomsbury Professional.
Associate Professor and Director of Mooting, Emily Allbon, and Lecturers Lynne Townley and Simone Start, helped facilitate this success.
